Important Info: User IDs cannot be changed. Once you have successfully chosen a User ID and submitted the record, this User ID will remain tied to your record and will not be changed. The password can be changed only once every 24 hours. After each successful password change, the Change NPI Password button will be disabled for 24 hours. If more than one password change is required within 24 hours, please contact the NPI Enumerator at 1-800-465-3203 for assistance.
Functionality is permitted based on the status in the NPI Status field:
